Autumn 1: What makes us special? 


This half-term we will be learning all about what makes us who we are! We will be looking at what makes us similar and celebrating our differences!


We will be exploring different types of puppets and we will be taking part in a puppet workshop making our very own puppet which reflects who we are! 

Autumn 2: How can we show kindness?


This half-term we will be finding out how we can show kindness! We will be thinking about charities and the important work they do helping others. We will be exploring the ways we can help people who are less fortunate than ourselves.


We will be reading simple stories about kindness, following, sequencing and writing instructions and talking about the things we have made. We will also be counting to 10, weighing vegetables and exploring 2D and 3D shapes.


We are also looking forward to our school Christmas fayre and will be making decorations and bath bombs to sell. All the money raised will go to charity!!

Things to Remember this half-term;

  • Please check Seesaw and complete the weekly activities to support your child's learning at home. 
  • If possible we are collecting tinned soup to give to the local food bank. Your child will get 2 kindness points for every tin of soup they donate!!

Science Week


We are really enjoying science week in year 1! Our theme is ‘growing’. We read the story Jaspers Beanstalk and then decided to plant our own bean seeds. We wanted to find out if seeds need soil grow so we decided to plant seeds in cotton wool, tissue paper, newspaper and fabric! We wonder if they will grow?πŸ”πŸ”

We went on a plant hunt, look at all the plants we found growing in our school garden. We found out plants need water and sunlight to grow! πŸŒ€πŸ’§πŸŒ§

Summer 1: What makes a good play area? 

This term we will be thinking about our new school and designing our own rooftop play area!! We will be visiting a park and discussing what we like to do at the park to help with our designs. We will be presenting our ideas to our class governor to take to the planning committee. 

We collected data to find out what we like to do best at playtime on our playground. Can you use the block graph to find out what we like to do the most/ least?
